Snowy day

Friday, February 08, 2013

We got our storm,about a foot of snow, but worse than that is what blew in with it... I have a cold, sore throat and partial laryngitis.. in and out with that.. people at work loved it of course, but nobody there knew sign language...

I am now in love with neighbor guy Don for walking his snow blower over here and doing our driveway!! I think I am making a treat for him tomorrow!!

    Yep. We're getting some snow too. Don definitely deserves some coffee and cookies.

Glad to hear it's laryngitis. I thot you stopped talking to me for some reason.

Hope you feel better soon. :)

    That's nice of him to do that of you to make him a treat for the favor.

Stay warm and get well.

    My advice is to stay home and get well rather than sharing your germs.
IMHO, you get well faster and others appreciate not becoming ill.

    Get better soon! And Don sounds like a total sweetheart for doing all that work. A foot of snow? I don't think I've seen a foot of snow since I was a kid. Stay warm!

    Sorry you are feeling ill. We have the same thing going around here but ours is from all the pollen that has been kicked up early because its been warmer than usual. Then it stormed and froze last week. I think everyone at home and at work have been sick. And yes, hubby enjoyed me not being able to talk.

Hope it warms up for you. Have a good weekend.

    I am so sorry you are sick again LINDA. It seems you just got over one thing and in to another.

I thought we were the only area your usually shows up on our wide area map, not this time. We have the snow till tomorrow I am ready but the high winds will be our problem.

Salt water and rest you know the drill.
Our neighbours called to say they will be doing our driveways. I said I will do the big back one and you can do the front so if you have company use that driveway. She said if you do your own driveway I will snow you in. ! Ha Ha
You are right good neighbours are good neighbours we take care of her dog if she needs us to only let it out to get air and bathroom , no walking to do. And they watch out for DH and I..

Take good care of y emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon ourself, hot green tea sound good for you.

So far, we only got about three inches of snow, but the biggie is tonight: 6-10 inches of additional snow.. I only work a few hours in the morning tomorrow,hope I can get out of my driveway and onto the main road..
I usually just step on the gas, barrel through the snow, and get in my lane.. Since I work very early in the morning, there are usually no other vehicles on the road, so I can just cruise down the highway plowing through the lanes and drifts.. We will see..

    We are readying for our first NorEaster so I need to get DH new medicine today.
They are predicting a foot or more and winds so the candles are ready and the propane stove is out and homemade chicken stew is for tomorrow, maybe Saturday too.
So far we have been spared I have used my Michigan Scoop but I might need the blower. No sweat I can do it. Take care, emoticon emoticon I hope DD is also on the mend with much less pain. emoticon emoticon emoticon

I seemed to feel more tired today, getting more cardio in too. DD is in a lot of pain, so we are lying low since it hurts her to walk or move in any way.
We, like everybody else in this state, are awaiting spring and just going day by day to let the days get longer and nights shorter.. It only makes our vacation closer,,

As I clean out drawers and files, I wonder what people did before taxes and bills, piles of paper work, in teh cold months... I now realize that God made these cold months for people like me to clean out accumulated papers and crank up a shredder or get the fireplace going..
reminds me to make a tax appt. for moms taxes too.. DRat..

    We have been spared the heavy snow but we have a Nor'Easter with a foot of snow predicted.

I hope there is less in Michigan right now. I really dislike the cold but I walked today with my new face mask and it really helped.

I hope both you and DD are feeling better very soon it has been a long freezing spell for you both.

Day by day,
Day by day,
Oh dear Lord,
Three things I pray...
I think winter cold stiffens us up and makes things get more sore. One thing I've found that can help is to sleep in a sleeping bag for a night or two. Being surrounded by warm seems to help. It's definitely time for more long-johns, and maybe a dog or two to help warm the bed.

I also find that the wood stove makes a great shredder. :)

We have now completed a whole month in this new year. So many people have weathered personal problems, tragedies, illnesses and inner turmoil. Whatever anybody is going through today, CAN get better, on HIS timetable, not ours.
Life is a line graph, ups and downs, we are put here for each other, friends or not, to support, understand, tolerate, give aid and learn from. Whatever life's lessons are on your blackboard today, relish the opportunity to find a solution, use your grey matter and to share it with another.

    Well said Linda.Thanks.

My white matter is fast catching up with my grey matter alas but what's the matter with that.

I guess so long as the Grey matter is there it is living.

I am wondering why and when the white matter takes over, what happens next.

I guess it will not matter then. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon
